Colin was simply fantastic to work with, a true professional through-and-through. He asked many thoughtful questions in advance of the performance to really get a sense of the company and the audience he would be performing in front of. His performance was well received by our employees, who gave him rave reviews and thoroughly enjoyed his set.
Things went wonderful--he had glowing reviews from all our attendees and the audience said he was the highlight of the event. He did a great job, stayed and mingled longer than expected and really went above and beyond. Glad this worked out so well given the short turnaround time!

Excellent. He was funny, relatively clean, and made a concerted effort to make his material relevant to the audience and organization.
